You can now buy doll ‘houses’ that are cutting-edge modern architecture, like these shipping container houses.
Of course, IKEA is launching their own doll houses.
This is closer to what I grew up with, both in terms of full-scale and doll-house furniture. Closer to grandparents dining room, but we had a larger side board, with 3 top rows. Our dining room table was oval. We had a clock like that in the stairwell area.
grandparents side piece in dining room more like that one
My grandparents bed was like this, but they never put the canopy top on. They had a wardrobe like that.
We had a computer table like this at one point
My dollhouse was a bit like this, although I am pretty sure now that my grandfather or dad made it. It had 3 rooms per floor & had stairs between floors.
This lay-out is getting closer
This lay-out is similar to my step-mum’s house
You could make the ‘burbs out of paper. We had wooden houses that looked a bit like that as knick-nacks.
But I think this is the best, most creative doll’s house of all.
